Tom_Devlin

 
HAuNTcon is pleased to present the following Advanced All-day Workshop,
Tuesday, January 28 – 9:00am-5:00pm
Making Monsters 101 – By Tom Devlin, 1313FX Fright Zone
www.1313fx.com

Along with an invaluable amount of knowledge, each student will take home Tom Devlin’s custom T13 Airbrush by Paasche! This all day class will teach students the entire process of creating, applying, and painting a latex prosthetic. Students will sculpt and mold a piece, take a brief lunch break, then come back to class and learn how to use latex to make their creation into a working piece of art using airbrush and hand applied paint techniques.

Class size is restricted to 20 people – $200 per person, includes a box lunch.

Haunt Tour Spotlight: Sunday Night – KINGS ASYLUM and 3HAUNTS

The Sunday Night Haunt Tour is a two stop 5 attraction spooktacular starting with KINGWOOD ASYLUM and 3HaunTs.

mediatitle

If there was ever a place that held secrets and wounds, it would be the grounds of the Kingwood Asylum. The walls of the asylum hold stories that would make you question the limits of humanity, but the woods and the earth itself are tainted, ruined, and diseased. This 2 element event is the brainchild of Shayne Torrans of Brutal Rust (check out his booth on the HAuNTcon show floor) and is chocked full of highly detailed sets and illusions.

3HaunTs

Our second stop is at Heart Stopper Fright’s 3HaunTs . The exact opposite approach of Kingwood Asylum, this down and dirty in your face 3 element event is a whopping 13 acres of Terror. Heart Stopper Fright is a living breathing monster that swallows hordes of guest only to spit them out a shivering shell of their former selves. Pyro, cramped spaces and an outdoor trail are in store for anyone brave enough to take a tour.

CLICK HERE to buy your tickets or purchase the full weekend combo pass which includes the Sunday Night Haunt Tour of KINGWOOD ASYLUM and 3HAUNTS.

About HAuNTcon

HAuNTcon features movie & TV industry celebrities for presentations and personal appearances.  In the past we’ve hosted makeup professionals such as Brian & Nick Wolfe, Cleve Hall, and Tom Devlin.  Actors from iconic horror movies such as Gunnar Hansen (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) have graced our celebrity ensemble.

If can’t get enough scares in October, try our Pre-Show overnight bus trip that includes lights on and lights off tours of local haunted events. This tour is followed by the full action tours on Friday and Sunday evenings.

The Trade Show floor, Friday through Sunday, is filled with the latest in fright services and equipment, for the professional Haunted House owner and the Halloween enthusiast alike. From horror makeup and highly detailed masks to static props and large animatronic creatures, everything a Haunter needs will be for sale, often at wholesale prices.  Stay four out Haunted Garage sale, where local haunted houses and manufacturers sell and trade anything everything haunted at this flea market/swap meet.  The sale is a great place to find killer deals.

The conference wraps up with advanced education on the Monday, following the trade show, with day-long hands-on workshops, covering everything from attraction design to creating realistic scenes of terror at your event!
